As a young art student, Bo Tak shot the only known European sequence of Charlie Parker on a 16mm movie camera. Tak photographed and shot footage of many famous jazz artists in his home country of Sweden and went on to work for over 40 years in Swedish Television. Prints of his collection including Lester Young, Benny Goodman, Charlie Parker, Tyree Glenn, Lee Konitz and Roy Eldridge are available on his website. Bo's work is included in an exhibition titled "The Music of the Harbor" in Gothenburg at the Maritme Museum,Sjöfartsmuseet, where his films of Charlie Parker, Benny Goodman, Roy Eldridge, Zoot Sims, Stan Getz, will be shown. The exhibition will last till the end of the year.
